Now there are more reasons to visit the town of Badian aside from the most frequently visited waterfall, the Kawasan Falls. Not known to many travelers and nature enthusiasts is a private resort named Agua Azul, which is an ideal place to unwind, relax and have fun with a group of friends, or carry out a team-building event.
Agua Azul was originally just a rest house built by an art hobbyist. The striking interiors of the festively colored rest house were delicately designed by the art hobbyist himself. Most of the antique wooden furniture inside the house were custom-made in Cebu or shipped from Pampanga.
Eventually, Agua Azul was purchased by the Mancao family. Now it has opened its doors to friends and relatives. The resort also accepts outside guests, but a referral is generally preferred. The entire resort can be rented overnight for a fee. Some guests were able to rent the entire place for Php10,000 only. Some had it for a lesser price.

Guests can enjoy the different amenities this private resort offers. It has 5 air-conditioned rooms, 4 bathrooms, kitchen, and a big garage that is very suitable for a group of people having an outing.
Agua Azul has a beachfront swimming pool and Jacuzzi. Guests can go paddle boating or jump off an inflatable trampoline in the middle of the sea. Other forms of recreation are chess, table tennis, pool tables, volleyball, badminton, and even mahjong.
How to Get There
Agua Azul may be a bit hard to locate as it is not yet that popular to most locals. However, you will be able to recognize the place once you see a white gate with a big red metal crab welded to the middle of the gate. The resort is situated just along the national highway and can be found at the right side of the main road if you are traveling from the city. It is also located before La Aplaya resort. You may either choose to ride a Ceres bus or a Librando bus.
Just a tip: Most Librando drivers and conductors recognize the place. Just request them to drop you off at the resort.
